Plant Information
Although closer in appearance to several types of squash, Cushaw Green-Striped pumpkins are in fact pumpkins. And like many of their orange-hued family members, they're exceptional for making pies. Their intriguing, curvy shape is very smooth with mottled green and white stripes and their tender and tasty yellow flesh is irresistibly sweet. Considered a heavy yielder, the Cushaw Green-Striped variety will treat you to a large quantity of hardy, 20-inch pumpkins, so you'll have plenty for all your pie-making and decorating needs as well as some spares to share. To help with longevity, be sure to harvest them with their stems still intact.
